Years ago I made a fabulous reverse appliqué of my sewing logo, and while I love the embroidery the shirt wasn’t that great. Some combination of the color, V-neck (often awkward on me), and clinginess of the fabric meant that I never wore the shirt. I don’t think I ever actually wore it out of the house after that photo shoot in 2010. That’s insane, because it’s a great design (courtesy of my husband Jason) and I put a lot of time into the stitching.

I had a really hard time making the first cut into the shirt, but I’m so glad I did it! This fuchsia and white jersey was about to be donated to the local Boys’ and Girls’ Club, but at the last minute I snatched it for this project. I whipped up the top in about 20 minutes, start to finish, and just cut into the fabric without worry about patterns.

I’ve been a big fan of kimono sleeves on knit tops for a while, and of stripe fabric, and it’s purely a coincidence that these two elements are a trend! right now. I went a little loose on the torso of the shirt, cause I can always take it in later.

It’s been so warm in LA lately that I’m sure I’ll have plenty of opportunities to wear my tee shirt immediately. I mean, I know that LA is SoCal, but last year I was bundled up every single day!

    Love the tee. The logo is brilliant with the fleur de lis and the little thread spool. I see now why you have NOLA love. I had a great time there. Thanks for the po’ boy recommendation. BTW if you don’t like the v-neck tee, cut out the logo and stick it onto something… pillow, another shirt, a bag. Don’t keep it in hiding.
